Cruise Line Guarantees Glaciers on Alaska Sailings or Receive Cruise Credit

For most guests, a cruise to Alaska wouldn’t be complete without seeing one of its amazing glaciers. Holland America Line (HAL) is responding to the sentiment by offering a Glacier Guarantee on all Alaskan sailings from May 2024 to September 2025.

This means you’ll see at least one glacier during your trip to the region. If you don’t get to see one, the cruise line promises to issue a Future Cruise Credit equivalent to 15% of your cruise fare.

“Our guests, and especially first-time guests, are understandably as obsessed with Alaska’s glaciers as we are, and our new Glacier Guarantee underlines our confidence in providing unforgettable glacier sightings on our Alaska cruises and Cruisetours,” said Kacy Cole, the cruise line’s chief marketing officer. 

Holland America’s Glacier Visits 

HAL has more permits to visit Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve than other cruise operators. Containing more than a thousand glaciers, the 3.3-million-acre park is home to the biggest mass of ice known as the Hubbard Glacier.

Holland America vessels also visit other glaciers, including Dawes Glacier, the Twin Sawyer Glaciers in Tracy Arm Fjord, and College Fjord.

During scenic viewings, ships sail up to the icy formations and rotate, offering guests 360-degree views. Park rangers from Glacier Bay spend the day onboard with guests to answer questions and help them learn more about the national park and its animals.

HAL has been sailing to Alaska for over 75 years. It has positioned itself as a cruise line that specializes in Alaskan itineraries. In addition to its latest Glacier Guarantee, it recently established Glacier Day as part of its “We Love Alaska” campaign.
